Fender Strat, Made in Mexico
Signed by Johnny Winter, July 18, 2013, almost one year to the day prior to his untimely death on July 16, 2014. His sig is just to the left of the output jack, in the darker ink.
You are buying a very nice 1998 Mexican Strat, with fresh strings (GHS 9-42) and the original Fender hardshell case.
Plays good, sounds good. No discernible fret wear.
Case is as it should be, all latches and hinges are good.

The boys at Backstage are pretty excited about this. We now have over 90,000 titles of sheet music available for our customers. We can provide the most current music, as well as some of the most obscure, right here in the store. No ordering, no waiting, no shipping, just printed sheet music, right now, right here.
To make it even better, you can request your sheet music in any key, and ask it be written for almost any instrument (i.e., voice, piano, guitar, violin, cello, etc.), and we can do that for you on the spot.
If you're not sure what key you need it in, that's no problem. We can play a clip of the music for you as it's written, and if you'd like the music transposed up or down, just ask, and we can play the transposed music for you. When it's in a key that's comfortable for you, your new sheet music will be ready to take home.
The next time you need that special song for a wedding, a recital, or a church event, let the boys at Backstage Music make it simple for you. Drop by any time, 10:00 until 6:00, any day (except Sunday), and we'll be glad to help out.
